This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race"
........ H G Wells

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better"
........ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Luck favours the prepared mind"
........ Louis Pasteur

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

laptop on back while riding my bike is normally no problem,
riding into the wind is normally no problem
but I had other stuff to carry to Islington today so that my friend could be sure of having everything necessary to fix the laptop

(the scale is in pounds, btw).... I think

(edit) piratical pounds [my sop to pirate talk for the day]

Well shiver me timbers .... that be a mighty load you are carrying ....

and I am sure you did it as elegantly as ever. but kudos and I hope everything is 'repaired'.

Dhamaka says:

Rusty Wench - you can have my transportation any day
*hands over bike*
*takes the Wench's car*
*drives off at speed*
..... beginning to like this pirate lark...

Maggoty - be sure I'll travel light tomorrow morning.

Blood and Guts - thank you! It's strange to catch glimpses of how other people see you. I'm not aching yet, although walking up 6 flights of stairs to a friend's place this evening felt rather more difficult than normal

This post reveals the answer

D. whether you're hiking up the stairs, or biking through the rain, I can tell from here that there is something elegant about you.
and don't argue with someone called "blood and guts"

I think you're ready for the mountains, O training partner...

Dhamaka says:

you are joking... when I got to Islington I had to ask Gav to carry my bag up the stairs because I was so tired I thought I might injure myself carrying both bike and bag!

Geodyne says:

That's a manual dexterity thing. :P
